Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His primary scientific interests are in Climate change, Ecology, Global warming, Climatology and Ecosystem. His Climate model study, which is part of a larger body of work in Climate change, is frequently linked to Vapour Pressure Deficit, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Vegetation and Bishop pine study in the realm of Ecology interacts with subjects such as Tree, Niebla and Cloud cover.

His Global warming research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Proxy, Climatic variables, Physical geography, Water content and Atmospheric temperature. His work on Walker circulation and Indian Ocean Dipole as part of general Climatology research is often related to Longitude and Convection, thus linking different fields of science. The concepts of his Ecosystem study are interwoven with issues in Respiration, Woodland, Seasonality and Woody plant.

His most cited work include:

  • Temperature as a potent driver of regional forest drought stress and tree mortality (1040 citations)
  • Impact of anthropogenic climate change on wildfire across western US forests (666 citations)
  • A westward extension of the warm pool leads to a westward extension of the Walker circulation, drying eastern Africa (339 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Climate change, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences, Vegetation and Global warming are his primary areas of study. His research on Climate change concerns the broader Ecology. His studies in Climatology integrate themes in fields like Tropical pacific, Climate model and Paleoclimatology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Carbon sink and Water content in addition to Atmospheric sciences. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Arid, Growing season, Productivity and Global change. His Global warming research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Regime shift, Greenhouse gas and Natural variability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (48.42%)
  • Climatology (44.21%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (26.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Climate change (48.42%)
  • Global warming (23.16%)
  • Climatology (44.21%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

A. Park Williams mainly investigates Climate change, Global warming, Climatology, Atmospheric sciences and Water content. His research in Climate change focuses on subjects like Vegetation, which are connected to Land cover and Biomass. The Global warming study combines topics in areas such as Ecological systems theory, Disturbance, Environmental resource management and Regime shift.

His Climatology research incorporates themes from Late summer and Climate model. His study looks at the intersection of Atmospheric sciences and topics like Growing season with Photosynthesis, Common spatial pattern, Soil water and Carbon sink. His research in Water content intersects with topics in Evapotranspiration and Surface water.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large contribution from anthropogenic warming to an emerging North American megadrought. (91 citations)
  • Climate change is increasing the risk of extreme autumn wildfire conditions across California (41 citations)
  • Climate change, ecosystems and abrupt change: science priorities. (29 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Climate change
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Global warming, Climate change, Climatology, Climate model and Vegetation. His research integrates issues of Regime shift and Disturbance in his study of Global warming. A. Park Williams performs multidisciplinary studies into Climate change and Psychological resilience in his work.

His Middle latitudes and Westerlies study in the realm of Climatology connects with subjects such as Dendrochronology and Context. His Climate model study combines topics in areas such as Fire weather, Hydrology, Water content and Megadrought. His Vegetation research focuses on Photosynthesis and how it connects with Growing season and Atmospheric sciences.
